Before God lead me to the truth of the Holy Bible and who He is, He lead me through many false spiritual paths. So that in the future (now) I would be able to bring people out of these deceptions and edify my brothers and sisters in Christ more clearly on such matters.
In my search for spiritual knowledge I went so far as to travel to a different country to take ayahuasca with a "shaman". Though I know now that these people are evil and only doing what they do for money and to lead you astray on the wrong path, away from God. These are agents of Satan, who have made deals with Satan and demons for worldly advantage and gain in exchange for their obedience. They know exactly what they are doing.
Once you understand that Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible is the truth you should be able to look at any spiritual teaching or religion that is not sound doctrine of the Holy Bible and see that it is false.
These false spiritual paths and religions go back since the time that the sons of men departed from worshipping the true God. Likely from the beginning, when Cain was driven out from the presence of God.
1 Corinthians 10:20 KJB
"But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils."
We can see proof that its all the same Satan, demon, nature and idol worship that has gone on since the beginning, just under new guises.
Just as the cross is used a symbol of Christianity, so likewise Satan has many symbols to show who is in allegiance with Him. Though unlike the cross, they keep the true meaning hidden, and lie to the masses what it really signifies (allegiance to Satan).
Look at the "Eye of Horus" which goes back to ancient Egypt and the pyramids. Compare it to the all seeing eye of "providence" which we see on our dollar bills.
